Church of St Andrew, Main Street, Owston and Newbold - Harborough

St Andrew's church includes the remains of the former Augustinian Priory at Owston. The fabric is C13 or earlier with some C14 and Perpendicular features. Conservatively restored in 1861. Though in fair order generally, there are areas of repair and repointing needed to the stonework of the tower, north aisle, nave and chancel. The spire stonework is split in places, possibly due to rusting iron cramps. Some rainwater goods are defective, causing damage to the stonework below. Grant funding options to address these defects are being explored.
